Any stressors?: The first thing I want to rule out is vascular disease. Erectile dysfunction can be caused by clogged arteries. Please get that fully evaluated! If that is OK, next I think about stressors, especially if desire has decreased. Hormones are also to be considered. However, the main question is "What in your life, over the last 6 months, has changed?"
